I was successful in installing 10.5.2 Kalyway on my Portege M200 after 8 times of installation. I thought my installation was not successful because I ended up with a blank screen after the Mac Logo appeared. Seems that the resolution on the M200 needs to be limited to 1024x768. So I used the parameters "Graphics Mode"="1024x768x32" during bootup, and voila it worked.

Portege M200
Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD
Chipset: Intel
Processor: Intel 1.6Ghz
Audio: AC97 - Unknown model, works with no patches (must set in bios)
Ethernet: Onboard works with no patches.
WIFI: Intel 2100 - Works (Unstable) using iwi2200.kext and nsGUI/networkselector - http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/ or swap Intel 2100 for Broadcom card with Broadcom patch on install dvd.
Video: NVIDIA 5200go - 2D support with NVinjectGo0.2.0 - Cant change resolution, no QE/CI support - Edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist to get 1400x1050 - No support for Movie Playback (iTunes,VLC,Quicktime)
USB: Works with Usbfix1.3 - http://forum.insanel...showtopic=95789
WACOM: Install Tabletmagic http://thinkyhead.com/tabletmagic/ and edit /System/Library/Extensions/Apple16X50Serial.kext/Contents/PlugIns/Apple16X50ACPI.kext/Contents/Info.plist and change the IONameMatch string from PNP0501 to WACF004 , delete kextcaches and reboot.
Use Extras tab in Tablet Magic Prefpane to check "Dont Query Digitizer" and enter 24590 x 18350 then enable daemon. (Dont forget to enable Inkwell)
How to install: This laptop doesnt have a cd drive, use another pc or laptop to install it, during install select the sse2 patch.

From the 10.5.2 HCL...... im installing right now but does the video work anybetter, or have u not gotten that far yet and what about wifi?

I'm putting this here because I've collected this from various other parts of the forums, but I haven't seen it all in one space.

I could get everything working on mine, except the video. It would boot up to a blank screen, I could hear the music going, and the voice audio walkthrough.

So here's what eventually worked:

As mentioned above, you want the NVinjectGo driver (not NVinjectGo512).

At the boot: prompt, type -s

boot: -s

Once you're at root, be sure to mount the filesystem:

:/ root# fsck -fy

:/ root# mount -uw /

Now you're going to want to run "/movevideodrivers":

:/ root# /movevideodrivers

Type 'yes' to all of the prompts EXCEPT the question about the "NVinject_Natit_ATYinject" driver, type 'no'


Once that's finished, you need to edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist:

:/ root# pico /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

In this file, underneath <key>Kernel Flags</key>, you want to change:

<string></string>

to

<string>"Graphics Mode"="1400x1050x32"</string>

Hit CTRL+x to get out of there, it should prompt you to save the file. Save it.

Now type "exit" and in a few minutes you should be looking at your newly installed OSX!

(Don't forget ALT+q will get you out of the Registration Information)

I hope this helps someone.

Congrats, I remember when I first got OS X to finally work. It was ALOT of work, but it was so worth it!



Do you know how to upgrade to 10.5.3 or 5.4??

Thanks you for your instuctions, I'll try it this weekend... I have a few questions: Does integrated bluetooth works? and does PCMCIA works fine? I really need bluetooth and it's a problem for me to use a usb bluetooth dongle without working pcmcia-slot (for additional usb controller)

PS I also want to try JAS 10.5.4, I will tell you about results...

Hi guys!
first of all i have to thank you, for this great threat (and forum).
I got OS X (10.5.2) running on my toshiba portégé m200, after editing the Boot.plist to start with "Graphics Mode"="1400x1050x32". But when i check the resolution in settings, it's 1280x1024 - can't change this. Does someone of you know how to edit some files to get 1400x1050x32?? searched for this, but mac is new for me, don't understand everything.

Did not know how to make screenshots, but my 'com.apple.Boot.plist' looks like this:
___________________________________________________
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>"Graphics Mode"="1400x1050x32"</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>5</string>
</dict>
</plist>
___________________________________________________

Well perhaps someone can help me, would be great =)

best wishes from germany

Yeah, definitely a thanks from me too! This has been a great tool to refer to, but I still can't seem to get this to work the way it "should". Ack, so I've been successful quite a few times in installing OS 10.5.2 on a Portege M200, but then I can't seem to get anything to work as it has been instructed/directed above.

1) No sound...looked at a few places and still couldn't seem to enable it.

2) Same issue as above - only get 1280x1024, but I guess I'm actually OK with the resolution as it is (even tho I've also modified that Graphics Mode line).

3) Touch Screen isn't working -- Tablet Magic, every time I "Enable Digitizer" and change the settings as described above, the computer reboots and resets the settings so that it says: "Tablet: Daemon Not Running", Don't Query is checked but the Digitizer Range resets itself to 00000x00000.

I've managed to get a touchscreen monitor to work on another hackintosh that I have by using a "Touchkit" app, and so tried that on tabletMac but that hasn't seemed to help since the computer doesn't recognize a tablet at all.
I've also installed a different Wacom Tablet on a different hackintosh with the software that come with the tablet and that worked fine...so I don't understand what's going on with this tabletMac...?

4) I haven't even TRIED to start with the ethernet or the WiFi stuff....b/c this other stuff is driving me INSANE, does anyone have any help?

5) I also can't get the battery status to work...even after checking out a few topics, including: http://www.insanelym...php/t87360.html and plenty more....

I've tried EVERYTHING that is listed above in all the replies....so perhaps I'll try re-installing but could someone please let me know what you checked when the OSX Installer Screen comes up?
--Which Kernel
--Which Patches
--Which Audio
--Which Display/Video (should I try the one for the laptop? the 512)
--Pretty much everything - which is checked and which is unchecked???

THANKS!!!!

@amoicani: Which installation CD did you use? I installed with Kalyway 10.5.2 without any problems. didn't un-/check anything in the audio section. all by default. and my sound works great - strange....

- Starting the Hackintosh isn't able without typing "speedkernel" at Darwin Bootscreen, because this is the only kernel which uses SSE2. You have to check the 'SSE2 patch' during install, of cause.
- Video Driver is NVinjectGo v.0.2.0
- Ethernet works out of the box - no problems
- WLAN 'tries to' work with "iwi2200.kext". Can see the Networks, but can't connect.
- Have installed TabletMagic, but didn't work for me.. :D

greetings

Hey surf_opi - Thanks for your reply!
I also used the Kalyway 10.5.2. installation, I didn't uncheck anything in audio and in System Preferences even when I check the box to show sound in the menu bar, I don't get to see that (of course it doesn't seem to recognize that I have sound in the first place, so I'm sure that's why it won't give me the icon). In Post #3 above it says - "must set in bios" -- but I'm not sure how to do that?
I can start without having to input anything @ Darwin Bootscreen -- after the intial modification of the com.apple.Boot.plist file. (I went ahead and entered: 1024x768x32, but it worked when I entered 1280x1024x32 also.), interesting...I wonder what will happen when I startup with "speedkernel" (I believe I checked that SSE2 patch also, b/c of the million times I've tried it, by process of elimination, it did seem necessary -- so cool that at least I did THAT part right!).
Finally checked ethernet -- and yay, it does work. WOO HOO!
Does SLEEP work for you?
I didn't have to do a fix for the USB ports to work....
It looks like people have gotten the touchscreen to work in UBUNTU -- wonder if that's worth trying?
Oh, I have a really stupid ? -- can you explain how to delete kextcaches? I see that in the instructions above, but when I looked in the Extensions directory, I didn't see .kextcaches file and I thought I read that that's where it should be..... I saw the "Extensions.mkext" file...but nothing else.
Thanks! :(

Hey -- so I finally got the tablet part to work...and the thing is, it took a LOT of messing around with the TABLET MAGIC settings and ALSO looking into the serial ports. I dragged myself through as many pages of this that I could.... http://forum.insanel...;hl=TabletMagic -- which was a lotta help, but quite time consuming. :)

I also downloaded and installed the only MAC driver that I could from WACOM's site, even though it wasn't for the tablet PC, I THINK it might've helped. The thing that helped me the most was finding out that if TabletMagic has "Automatic" set in the "Port" field (the first drop down menu item), it didn't work...not until I was able to choose "serial0" (for a while it never changed, only "Automatic" was the option), did the "Tablet:" field show: "ISD V4.0 (TabletPC)"....and then all was reading perfectly!

Sorry, it's hard for me now to remember ALL of the things that I did and it might not have even been necessary, but I do know that after doing all of this, everything with the actual tablet functionality is working. So, I used all the settings mentioned above but I also had to manually re-load the kext, I think. And I also used "xxd /dev/ttys001" to discover that it was finally working...I had intially been trying "xxd /dev/ttys0" (or ttys1 or ttys2), but nothing was working.

So it wasn't until I had it all working AND I had the pen from inside the battery holder in my hand that I saw that it was being recognized....so I'm gonna see if I can get a different one that I have to work also (by loading up that software). So I'd say the downside is that you can't just use ANY stylus for a Tablet...didn't know that (I'm used to PALM -- which I KNOW is a big difference, but to be honest with you, I hadn't realized HOW different.
The upside is that you can "write on" the screen with your pen without it actually recognizing palm pressing or other areas that you might touch the tablet (like accidental taps on the touchpad).

I still need to get sound to work and I'd like to find out if I can get this to turn around (as a windows computer apparently closed as a "tablet" you can change the layout either portrait or landscape and either rightside up or upside down...and the reason that is key is b/c in my lap right now, the fan is blowing HOT air at me...ick.

Thanks a million times over to Scott for developing this -- and to everyone else for all of your hard work and any/all advice!

Did you all install without an external monitor? It works very nice on the external monitor, but not on the Notebook LCD. Stays black after white boot screen.

Sorry for reviving a dead thread, but did anyone come up with an answer as to how you install Leopard on this M200?

If you just pop in the DVD and use the CD-RW drive that comes with the laptop (connects by USB), it won't work....

I too am sorry to revive a dead thread. I can't wait to get this up & running and am trying hard w/ many distro's.

I use a PCMCIA optical drive but always get the 'still waiting for root device' no matter which distro or options I use.
Did you guys use a USB optical drive or PCMCIA? I've put in alot of time into this and will not give up. Please if any of you are watching this thread, which distro did you use and how did you boot? PCMCIA? USB? Thanks so much to anyone who might be able to help just a little. I feel once I get past this & install I'll be able to figure out the rest as you have. Thanks! Once I get the install to start I hope/think I'll be good w/ everything else.

Hi there! Sorry for a slow reply, but I thought I'd letcha know that I used a USB drive, however I had to use one that was independently powered to get it to install (I tried one of my usb dvd drives that is supposed to be portable and therefore powered by the computer, and it didn't work).
I used KALYWAY 10.5.2 -- haven't upgraded yet b/c I have it working almost perfectly and don't wanna spend the time tweaking again...but the tablet works well (though I'd love for it to work better - more like the iPhone), and ethernet is good....only things I don't have going are the wiFi, pcCard, & sdCard slots....but they're not soooo important for me at the moment.
Feel free to PM me if you want some tips/advice - I'll try to help as best as I can.

Good luck to you all! =D

Thank you very much, I appreciate your reply. It sounds like I'll have to get an external USB drive up & running. As best I can tell everyone who's had success has been w/ a USB drive, not a PCMCIA optical drive like I have. Thanks again!

I had the same problem... You have to plug the PCMCIA DVD-ROM and if you got it a USB DVD-ROM drive. You have to boot the Kalyway DVD with the PCMCIA DVD-ROM, select the -v mode and when it hang, swap the Installation DVD from the PCMCIA drive to the USB drive... Magically the installation should start without any problem...

Good Luck!
